Josh Mandel’s New Ad Argues For Change, But What Kind Of Change Would Mandel Offer?

Called Sherrod’s Vote On Auto Rescue “Un-American”

Josh Mandel’s new ad makes the claim that Ohio should change the people they send to Washington. But what sort of “change” would Mandel offer?

In the last few days we’ve learned exactly what Josh Mandel’s talking about.

A Politician Who Won’t Fight For Ohio’s 850,000 Auto Industry Related Jobs

After months of ducking and dodging, Mandel finally revealed his opposition to the auto rescue in a “lengthy, detailed assault” before the Columbus Dispatch editorial board, in which he called the cost of the loans “ridiculous” and tried to assert the rescue “didn’t work” despite much evidence to the contrary, including recent news that GM will build the next-generation Chevy Cruze at their Lordstown plant.

A Politician Who Won’t Fight For Ohio Manufacturing By Cracking Down On China

At the Republican National Convention this week, Mandel revealed his opposition to Senator Brown’s bipartisan jobs bill to hold China accountable for their currency manipulation that costs Ohio jobs. Ohio Republican Senator Rob Portman supported Brown’s bill, but Mandel prefers a less-bold approach that has already proven ineffective at protecting jobs here at home.

Thanks anyway, Josh.

“Instead of Sherrod Brown, a champion for Ohio manufacturing and middle class jobs, Josh Mandel would be a Senator who opposed fighting for Ohio’s 850,000 auto industry related jobs and refuses to stand up for Ohio manufacturers against cheating China, and that’s not the kind of change Ohio needs,” said Sadie Weiner, spokeswoman for Friends of Sherrod Brown. “Josh Mandel’s record of hiring unqualified political cronies, skipping work, and bowing to the payday lending industry isn’t change, it’s the record of another politician who can’t be trusted.”
